Welcome to the web space of M. S. College
Munshi Singh College, popularly known as M. S. College made a very modest start.
This premier centre of higher education in the Northern part of Bihar was established in the year 1945 when some pious & noble souls of Champaran sat together to discuss the need of a college in Motihari, the heart of Champaran. From a rented building of one Mr. Rahman to Meyrick Bungalow &Busbariya Bungalaw of Bettiah Raj the make-shift arrangements continued till the college took its final shape in the year 1950 when it got its present location – the old & abandoned historic jail premises of the British era, at the hands of the first Chief Minister of Bihar, Dr. Shrikrishna Singh. The college was named after Babu Munshi Singh, an ordinary farmer with a noble soul who generously donated seventy five thousand rupees.
M. S. College was fortunate to have got a group of socially committed people who worked day and night to ensure a speedy growth of the college.
Thus, while the college started with courses of Intermediate standard only; undergraduate classes were started within ten years in 1955 and by the year 1971 the UGC went on to approve teaching up to Postgraduate level. All this was made possible because of the untiring efforts of the group consisting of persons like Shri Ramlakhan Babu, Sri Babu, Sri Narayan Singh, Keshav Babu, the first principal and Shri Bhola Prasad Singh who served as the principal of the college till 1984.
Today, M. S. College has made a long stride. It has full time courses up to under-graduate & post-graduate levels in thirteen subjects of Arts, Science and Commerce. The college is also proud to have a separate Law Faculty. Moreover, in keeping pace with time, job-oriented self-financing Degree courses – BBA, IMB & BCA were also introduced a decade back & have been running successfully since then. M. S. College has also become a hub of Learning through Distance Mode to the entire Champaran region - the east and the west. We have study centres of IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University) & Nalanda Open University which has shown sharp growth since its launch a few years back. The achievements of the college have also led to its being declared as a College with Potential for Excellence by the state government.
M.S. College located in the backward district of East Champaran is also proud of the fact that the majority of its students belong to the marginalized sections of the society – SC, ST, OBC, Minorities, Women & BPL categories. Special care is being taken of these sections in the form of UGC sponsored Remedial Classes, NET Coaching, Entry in Services Coaching, Career Counseling and various Scholarship & Stipend schemes of the State government and the UGC.
